January 23,’19- Dual Motor Badge Installed thru Tesla Mobile and arrived two hours early. First Dual Motor P badge In our area, and first on left side. Tesla utilizes a template designed for right side badging installation but it came out well anyhow! 

Finally...3  months later!
Finally...3 months later!

Tesla key fob , and key card use~ at 2200 miles now ...I have to say I have my Iphone as key, the key fob in my pocket , and the key card in my wallet ; and sometimes it still doesn’t open open right away. Sometimes these alternative tech options,  just don’t fly. The key fob doesn’t allow passive entry, so you have to put it up to the B-pillar to unlock. Good thing there are 2 other redundancies. The IPhone connected thru Bluetooth seems to work best, and the key card in my wallet doesn’t work that great even when I take it out or put in the console to start the car. This is a frustrating example of smart technology used stupidly !

March 18th 2019~Spoke with Tesla about the Carbon Fiber spoiler Performance Model comes with! They received eight spoilers Friday but none are allocated for mine yet. Just crazy  only 175 days later , and still can’t give us what we paid for.

~On the Technology side , Sentry mode , which uses 4 of  the surrounding cameras to create a mesh surveillance if someone tries to break in/vandalise  the car or hits into it then automatically starts recording and/or flashes lights and blasts music .

Also , added Auto-fold unfold mirrors , which based on your location will automatically fold in mirrors for going into garage. The car has been built in sensors, which shows you (and beeps) an illustration on the touchscreen of how close you are to surrounding objects. Also, the front and rear parking sensors tell you how many inches you are from an object. Very useful. My Model 3 also automatically opens garage door, and that was updated a few months ago .

March 26th~ For free, Tesla did a 5% Peak Power Increase definitely can feel the retune on this additional 25hp, and torque. Sentry mode is definitely a value added alarm feature Elon musk gets a kudos for this but no Performance spoiler. I paid for a Performance Model 3 with a spoiler in October 2018 but they haven’t enough of them to ship me one. Basically, a circlejerk trying to get anything solid in answers. Eventually , they’ll do it and I may not have the car anymore but that’s Tesla...

April 04,2019~ Tesla delivering new Model 3 Performance with Carbon Fiber Spoiler installed (Norway) already , while I have been waiting since October getting the circle jerk Of shitty Customer service . Tesla Un-Customer Care needs to be Called out on how full of shallow replies, and empty promises they really have. Due to the current lack of competition they seem to ignore customer needs. F for Fail. Elon Musk has customer service as his last priority!

Update: Tesla Performance Spoiler ~ I was at the Tesla Sevice Center on April 18th looking at the Model X. I popped over to Service, and asked if they had my Spoiler in yet. She said YES, we can pull one , and after a little initial confusion , 30 miutes later ...it was done. Oddly, Tesla said they would call as soon as it arrived but never did. I am not clear if she decided to give it to me after months of complaining but showing up in person seemed to have some merit for me and others . ~ 1)I’ve never seen the spoiler in person , it’s kinda small and non-substantial. The Tesla sales representative I was dealing with n the X took picture of the spoiler on my car as he never saw one himself🧐. If you want one now, you can buy replicas off eBay for $169 or much nicer ones at unplugged performance and t-sportline for $499 3) Honestly, I should have just bought one of those months ago, and sold the Tesla Spoiler when it came in. I thought they were nicer, and more  money!

Whoopy!
